Pat Narduzzi threw out what seemed to be a completely out of the blue tweet Friday night but it turns out it was anything but.

Narduzzi tweeting about Wendy’s french fries?
As you can probably guess, this had nothing to do with fast food and everything to do with recruiting.
It just so happens that Pitt’s top 2020 target works at a Pittsburgh area Wendy’s.
Westinghouse star defensive end Dayon Hayes got a call from Pat Narduzzi yesterday as he was on his way to work, thus the reference from Narduzzi about the fast food chain.
“We talked until I clocked in at work,” Hayes told Pittsburgh Sports Now.
We asked Hayes for his reaction to Narduzzi’s latest recruiting move to try and keep him home and play for Pitt.
”My reaction was that’s hilarious that coach did that,” said Hayes. “When I saw it, I just busted out laughing because it was funny and unexpected, They (Pitt) are recruiting me the hardest definitely.”
Hayes is a player Pitt covets and would arguably be Narduzzi’s biggest get since coming to Pitt.
